14 Pews offers a WEEKEND WORKSHOP -- a hands-on class for ADULTS in directing, interviewing subjects, cinematography, sound and production, which covers the creative and technical demands of telling a real story with moving images.

The art and craft of documentary is taught through a balance of classroom instruction, hands-on video shoots, and immediate directing experience.

From the first hour of class, students are behind the camera, learning by doing. The first day of class will be at the 14 Pews location.

Students shoot on HD digital video cameras, and will learn how to compose, direct, and light their movies. There will be AN AMAZING in-class documentary shoot, highlighting Houston artist WILLIAM LOYD.
